A Busy Holiday Season at Tri-Community Food Bank

Rosemary Douglas

Fall is one of the busiest times of year at the Tri-Community Food Bank (TCFB), as we prepare to make the holidays a little brighter for our neighbors in need. We are seeing an increase in customers, with many of our families coming in for a regular food box and to sign up for a holiday meal.

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we will distribute the makings of a complete turkey dinner, along with many extras, to 250 families. Also in November, each of our families will receive a warm blanket in addition to their regular food boxes.

At Christmas time, our families will receive the ingredients for a complete holiday dinner, along with some surprises for the children.

The TCFB is located at 108 Redwood Road in Mammoth. It is open five days a week (Monday through Thursday and Saturday) from 9 a.m. to noon to serve the communities of Oracle, San Manuel, Mammoth, and Dudleyville.

The Tri-Community Food Bank is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and an Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization. Our mailing address is P.O. Box 38, Mammoth, AZ 85618. The Food Bank is an all-volunteer organization. We are totally supported by your generous donations. The TCFB also receives food donations from the United Food Bank in Mesa, Ariz.
